The Los Angeles Dodgers are not about to sit quietly and let the San Diego Padres beef up their rotation with so much as a response.
The Padres reportedly are close to acquiring 3-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer from the Washington Nationals. In response, MLB Network’s Jon Morosi says the Dodgers are likely to target Jon Gray or Jose Berrios.
Berrios, 27, is a two-time All-Star for the Minnesota Twins. He is 7-5 with a 3.48 ERA this season and known for his excellent curveball. He is not scheduled to become a free agent until 2023.
